Hanging Basket Pre-Order

To bravely go where no perennial nursery has gone before! Welcome to our pre-order of annual hanging baskets. You’ve been asking us for them for years. Who are we to deny you the happiness and inspiration of technicolour annuals? We love them ourselves. In 2020 we launched our new “Annuals Are People Too” section highlighting annuals and temperennials. Annual hanging baskets are just the next step.

We are pleased to offer you a wide selection of hanging baskets in various sizes and with a variety of different annuals in a range of colours. Please pre-order as soon possible! At this point we are planning to order just what we need to fill pre-orders and may not have many extras on hand. So we highly recommend pre-ordering. Enjoy!

Hanging basket pick-up is estimated to begin on Friday May 14th, 2020.

Solenia Begonia Hanging Baskets

Solenia Begonias can be grown from full sun to part shade. They will bloom continuously from spring to fall. They are highly branching, mildew resistant, heat and wind tolerant, and are self-cleaning so there’s no deadheading required! The photos below of hanging baskets are actual photos of the baskets you will receive starting to bloom or hitting their peak bloom. When you pick up in May, they will just be filling in and starting their bloom period and will reach peak performance a bit later in the season.

Nonstop Begonia Hanging Baskets

Nonstop Begonias can be grown from part sun to shade. Morning and evening sun is fine but they should be protected from the hot afternoon sun. Other than that they will bloom continuously from spring to fall and are self-cleaning so there’s no deadheading required! The photos below of hanging baskets are actual photos of the baskets you will receive starting to bloom or hitting their peak bloom. When you pick up in May, they will just be filling in and starting their bloom period and will reach peak performance a bit later in the season.

Mixed Annual Hanging Baskets

Our mixed annual hanging baskets are packed with the best flowering and foliage annuals for an entire season of cheerful colour and beauty.

When you pick up in May, they will just be filling in and starting their bloom period and will reach peak performance a bit later in the season.

Don’t Forget your Fertilizers

Annuals are fast-growing and produce lots of flowers so they need good nutrition to perform. Your hanging baskets will not grow well without fertilizer. We recommend a combination of our Hanging Basket 14-14-14 four month slow release plus weekly applications of Superbloom 10-40-25 water soluble fertilizer. If you’re not good at fertilizing regularly then you must use a slow release. If you are very good at fertilizing then you could get away with just the water soluble. If you’re an average human, using both fertilizers will guarantee you an excellent show.
